ABACUS-PH is an acronym for Orchestra's statistic tracking system; Agility, Bulk, Awareness, Cleverness, Understanding, and Sympathy are the six attributes that comprise the ''natural'' group of human attributes. These are the generic things present in every person that allow them to function on a daily basis, though some people are better than average at them. Psychic and Hyperhumanity are the two ''unnatural'' attributes, which are not present in all humans. These have come about in the past twenty or so years as a result of modifying human genetic codes, neural structures, and physical bodies, and are found only in select individuals.
The ABACUS-PH attributes are further broken down into four color categories:
- Red (Agility, Bulk) represents physical strength and the ability to use it effectively, as well as resisting disease and injury.
- Blue (Awareness and Cleverness) represents intelligence and the ability to assess surroundings.
- Green (Understanding and Sympathy) are the ''social'' attributes, used to understand others' thoughts and appeal to them respectively.
- Silver (Psychic and Hyperhumanity) represents the unnatural attributes that have sprung about as a result of modifications to humanity.
